just something that' been bothering me.
i know there are guy's out there that have real issues that are real. my problem is if we're going to continue to allow partial lockouts it will be abused. i feel the rule should be the same for every lift.
now if i were to show up at a meet and say i have a problem like i can't lock my knees would that be allowed.
now if it is allowed that gives me a tremendous advantage over the other lifters as it does now for these benchers.
i don't think the squat and deadlift scenario would fly so then why does it in the bench-press?
i also realize that we are all lifters and we want to compete and we should.i think if a lifter is allowed to lift and not lockout his or her bench it should not count as a record if everyone else is not afforded the same lieutenancy .
this is just something that has been bothering me for awhile.
